4 Common Misconceptions about Becoming a Psychologist

Sharing is caring :)

Being a psychology student myself, let me just assure you that there are A LOT of things that I have believed to be true about psychology that I had to find out was in fact a lie. 

A misconception can be defined as a wrong or inaccurate ideology about something. Due to the stigma around the idea of human behaviour and mental health, the psychology industry and becoming a psychologist has been majorly affected by misconceptions. In this article, we will debunk some of these misconceptions for the betterment of fellow psychologists and the society. 

Misconception 1 : Psychologist DO NOT study real science

The debate that has been on-going for decades argues the question of whether Psychology is a form of Science or not. Yes, Psychology is a form of real science. Psychology is a science as it is based on the use of many scientific methods. The study of human behaviour being done is obtained through verified theories and evidence of human behaviour and mental processes. 

Misconception 2 : Psychologist study “common sense” + psychology is easy

Many people consider psychology to be an “easy way out” as it is perceived to be one of the easiest courses offered. Well, every programme and field has its own set of challenges. Psychology may be somewhat easier for you if you have a strong interest in it but keep in mind it includes designing research studies, analyzing data using statistics, reading A LOT of academic journals and writing research papers.

Misconception 3 : Psychology graduates do not have a lot of job opportunities waiting for them

When you tell your peers that you’d like to study psychology, there is a 90% chance that the first thing they would tell you is “Psychology can’t get you a job”. INCORRECT. 

In fact, psychology is one of those fields that allows you a wealthy amount of job opportunities in various industries. Psychology is the study of human behaviour and the understanding of human behaviour is crucial is almost every aspect of the working life. With a psychology degree, you can find yourself from the clinical to the human resource to the communications line. What’s important is for you to constantly develop additional skills whilst earning your degree to further enhance your employability. 

Misconception 4 : Psychologist can read minds

If you think becoming a psychologist can give you the ability to read people’s minds just by looking at them, then unfortunately I have bad news for you. Pursuing a psychology degree will NOT allow you to read minds. Yes, psychology is the study of human behaviour. This basically means that with the knowledge and skills that you learn, you will be able to make a knowledgeable guess of what a person may be feeling or thinking based on their non-verbal communication such as their body language. 

What is Psychology?

Psychology, in Layman’s terms, is the study of the mind and behaviour. It studies how humans think, act and feel is dependent on biological influences, social pressures as well as environmental factors. The field of psychology is mainly based on the concepts of describing, explaining, predicting and changing behaviour. 

Key Skills Needed to Become a Psychologist

As you dive into the world of studying human behaviour, here are a few common skills/traits needed in individuals to become successful psychologists :

1. Communication Skills

As one of the main roles of being a psychologist requires you to work closely with others, having good communication skills is extremely important. Communication skills include verbal, non-verbal communication as well as the ability to receive and interpret messages accurately. Strong communication skills ensure a clear and effective way of doing your job and enabling others to do their job as well. 

2. Problem-solving skills

Psychology is the study of humans. Therefore, things are not always set in stone. Problem solving skills enables us to identify problems, analyse the cause factor for these problems and lastly determine a method of solving those problems. The ability to solve problems in a quick and effective manner will help in the varying contexts of human behaviour that you will face at work. Problem solving skills include the ability to use logic, creativity, imagination and determination. 

3. Research Skills

No matter the field of psychology that you will be diving into, research skills are a must have. This skills helps in a range of potential roles such as conduction of your own experiments, aiding patients with past experiences of other psychologists or even researching previously done experiments. You should be able to effectively find the information that you need through thousands of scientific journals with decades of data and be able to evaluate it accurately for your own benefit.

What is Game Development?

Source: Thomas Brush

Game development is a creative art whereby a person or a team creates new games. Video game developers are more likely to convert ideas and objectives of the design team into an actual game.

The game development process includes concept generation, design, building, and testing. It requires programming language as developers write codes to determine how the computer will handle everything in the game, from the rules to the graphics.

Career Options with a Game Development Degree

There are many types of game developers involved in game development and each of them has a crucial part in the creation of a game. 

Artificial intelligence programmer (AI)

AI programmers develop the responsiveness for computer-controlled opponents and allies based on a player’s actions. AI enables computer characters to react realistically, and strategically to the player, especially in games that consist of difficulty setting. 

Graphics programmers

Graphics programmers work closely with artists to figure out how to incorporate the artwork into a game. They apply the knowledge of mathematics to develop sophisticated algorithms and produce 2D and 3D graphics. 

Network programmers

Network programmers write the code that enables gamers to connect with gamers across the world online. They also develop security measures to prevent cheating and allow players from different countries to compete against each other.

Differences between Game Design and Game Development

The main difference that separates these two departments is that game designers work on the concept of the game such as creating storyline or plots, gameplay on how players could interact with the game, and the type of characters who would fit into the plots. On the other hand, game development involves writing codes to turn the game designer’s vision into a playable product.

When it comes to deciding on which course to study, your interests play a vital role in the selection of your career. If you believe you are creative and have design talents to come up with storylines and character appearances that could attract gamers to the game, you may pursue a degree in game design. If coding is your primary interest, then you may choose game development and work on the graphics and user interface to enhance the gaming experience.

Study Economics Degree and Courses in Malaysia

Sharing is caring :)

With the current pandemic ongoing, the “word” economy or economic would have been repeated multiple times either on the national news airing on the tv or the local newspaper. If you’re someone who has been following news about financial reports and the current economic trends; and has been curious about what affects a country’s economy and how could a country improve its economy, a degree in economics might be the right one for you. 

In this article, we’ll be diving deeper into the basics of economics, why is it important and the pathway to becoming an economist. 

What is Economics?

Economics is one of the social science groups that explore issues that impact financial situations and decisions. Economics looks at how the world’s limited resources are used and distributed among individuals and organizations. It also studies how people make choices under scarcity (limited) and the impact of these decisions on society. 

The two significant branches of economics are macroeconomics and microeconomics. Microeconomics is the study of individual choices under scarcity, and its implication on prices and quantities in a particular market. For example, when there’s a limited amount of face masks available in the market, prices of face masks go up, but people would still buy as long as the necessity of face mask continues to be present in the market. While Macroeconomics looks at the bigger picture of a country’s economy as a whole; and studies national economics and the policies the government implements to improve its economic performance. Macroeconomics tries to find answers and solutions for questions such as “What would the inflation rate be in the next 5-10 years?” or “Why is the rate of unemployment increasing and what could be done on a national level to decrease the rate of unemployment?”.

Why is Economics Important?

Economy and business work hand in hand, one isn’t able to survive without the other. Businesses are the engines of an economy as they provide job opportunities which generate incomes, make goods and provide services for consumers to purchase. A balanced healthy supply and demand chains in a thriving market is what economics is about. Economies can exist without businesses, but they will not be substantial. Imagine an economy where everyone just works for themselves and produces their own products, there would be a limitation in the purchasing power resulting in not everyone’s needs or demands could be met. A thriving economy in any country helps to improve the quality lives of its citizens by improving one’s earning and spending power, better health care development and also the quality of education.

What are the Roles of an Economist?

An economist is an expert who studies the relationship between a society’s resources and its production or output. Economists study societies ranging from small communities to the entire nation and even the global economy.

An economist’s expert opinions and research findings are used to help shape a wide variety of policies, including interest rates, tax laws, international trade agreement, and employment programs.

There are various duties of an economist, including researching economic issues, conducting surveys and collecting data, interpreting and forecasting market trends, and advising businesses and the government.

What are the Skills Needed to Pursue an Economics Course

  • Knowledge of social sciences:  Although mathematics is an important skill it is not all you need to become a successful economist. Economics also has much common ground with other social science subjects that plays an important role too. For example, psychology helps economists observe  consumer behaviour while history is the study of events, allows economists to look at the similarities of different events and question if it supports a particular economy theory or model. 
  • Independent thinking: While it’s evident that it is essential to know other people’s work and theories but to be a successful economist, you also will need to have insights and ideas of your own. The ability to think for yourself and question what you know will allow you to take new directions and develop original research that will make you a better economist.
  • Good in numbers: Numeracy is a crucial skill for an economist. From dealing with large datasets to interpreting visual data like graphs, you’ll need to be comfortable handling numbers and working with mathematical principles. 
  • Good at understanding complex systems: The fact is that economics is a complex subject which looks at complex systems. You’ll need to be able to pull together information from different sources from various fields.

Career Path for Economics Graduates

  • Economist: Study how society distributes resources, such as land, labour, raw materials, and machinery, to produce goods and services. They conduct research, collect and analyze data, monitor economic trends, and develop forecasts on a wide variety of issues, including energy costs, inflation, interest rates, exchange rates, business cycles, taxes, and employment levels, among others.

 

  • Financial Risk Analyst: Identifies and analyses potential risk threatening the financial position of commercial and industrial corporations. 

 

  • Data Analyst: A data analyst collects, processes and performs statistical analyses on a large dataset. They discover how data can be used to answer questions and solve problems related to financial and economic trends. 

 

  • Financial Planner: A financial planner is a qualified investment professional who helps individuals and corporations meet their long-term financial objectives or to build and obtain wealth. Financial planners do their work by consulting with clients to analyze their financial goals, risk tolerance, and life or corporate stages and then identify a suitable class of investments. 

What are the Core Subjects Taught in Economics?

  • Statistics
  • Econometrics
  • Macroeconomics
  • Microeconomics

How Do I Become an Economist

There are two pathways to become an economist, the first pathway takes around 3 years after completing the pre university program (A-Level, Foundation, etc). The second pathway is by signing up for a Diploma program which roughly takes around 2-2.5 years to complete and students can progress directly into Year 2 of the degree program.

The Future of the Events Industry - Should You Still Pursue Your Dream Career?

As the Covid-19 pandemic took over the world, we have seen shifts in every dimension of our lives- the pace of change we have experienced in the past year; technological, social, behavioral or otherwise, has almost transcended the entirety of the past decade. Events is one industry that has been uprooted almost entirely.

 

Understandably, there is a degree of uncertainty when it comes to the future of the industry. Event planners have had to rewrite the entire exhibitions rulebook. Experiences that they have been building throughout their careers were suddenly rendered useless and irrelevant, and they have had to quickly acquire new skills and reimagine the future of events. 

Its a New Dawn for the Events Industry - One With More Promise Than We Can Imagine

Over the last year or so, we have seen several companies take their events online, and found creative, innovative ways to connect with the audience. For the foreseeable future, virtual remains the only way to connect, but it is still, pretty much uncharted territory. 

 

In a sea of uncertainty, we can either choose to drown in it, or focus on what we can control. One thing we can do is increase our knowledge of the new technological advancements, get tech-savvy, and familiarise ourselves in virtual technology. 

 

Event planners have been presented with an opportunity to find new ways to balance the virtual world with the online world, and find new tools to stimulate online engagement. We are envisioning a future incorporated with VR and AR elements to enhance personalisation. 

 

Though it is still in its early stages, the new era of the events industry will set the stage for generations to come. 

The Landscape of the Events Industry Has Been Turned Inside Out, and Things May Never Go Back to the Way It Was - and That is Not a Bad Thing!

The link between physical space and events is barely hanging on by a thread at this point. We need to prepare for a reality where physical events may never matter again. Perhaps by the time we make it out of this pandemic, the nature of networking will be changed beyond recognition. 

 

As the events industry moves forward, so does technology and the generations attached to it. Event planners have already started moving on from catering to the Millennials to catering to Generation Z – the group of people who were practically raised by the internet. So, it makes perfect sense for the future of the events industry to be hybrid events, or even entirely virtual.

 

No matter how much change we go through, one thing will always remain constant. People are always looking for new experiences. Event planners are given a chance to push the boundaries and find new ways to convey captivating experiences, specifically tailored to meet the ever-so-changing requirements and preferences of the people. 

 

If you ask us, this is the perfect time to get into the events industry. Become an early adopter, stay so ahead of the curve that the curve becomes a sphere!

It’s a common misperception that early childhood education is only about learning essential skills. But it is much more than that, it’s a time when children learn crucial social and emotional skills and a partnership is formed between the child, parents and teachers. When this is done successfully, it lays the groundwork for continuing growth throughout the child’s education. 

 

What is Early Childhood Education?

You enjoy excellent job security: It’s a great time to consider a career in an early childhood education as it has strong growth and is one of the most in-demand professions among the others. 

Career opportunities are endless: There are various professional roles in the industry, so there’s always room for you to grow and challenge yourself in the industry.

Scholarships for SPM, IGCSE, A-Level and UEC Students in Malaysia 2021

Sharing is caring :)

Cost is a major factor in the student’s decisions when choosing a university. We understand that the cost of education can have a long-term impact on one’s life, therefore it is important to sort out the budget when making the decision. Scholarships can be a good financial aid option for students to get financial support in their studies, and the best part is they don’t have to be repaid! There are different scholarships provided by different private universities and colleges in Malaysia. 

If you have thought of applying for a scholarship but have no idea where to begin or how to apply, this article will give you some ideas and also some recommendations! 

Things to consider before applying for a scholarship

1. Do your research

After you have gotten your results, it is time for you to decide on which university to attend, what course to take, and not to forget to look for scholarships to ease your parents’ financial burden. There are various types of scholarships provided by the public sectors, private companies, and universities with their own specific scholarships. It is important to do your research and find out which type of scholarship suits you the best. Because different institutions have different requirements and offer different courses. Feel free to contact us for a free consultation!

2. Be mindful of the closing date

Just like the semester start date and application closing date, scholarship application also has its own deadlines, and it varies depending on the course and the institution. It is important to always be aware of the deadlines for the scholarships you are applying for. Institutions with a high volume of applications are likely to overlook late applications. Therefore it is important to mark the date, so that you will not miss it.

3. What they are looking for

It is essential to know exactly what the scholarship provider is looking for when considering who they will select as the recipient. Some universities require interviews before choosing the right scholarship holder, therefore it is important for you to showcase yourself and articulate why you think you are the best candidate for the scholarship. 

 

Different institutions might require different qualifications. The common ones would be SPM or IGCSE. This article will also talk about the types of scholarships available for different qualifications.

As mentioned above there are different types of scholarships provided by different sectors. In this article, we are giving you a list of scholarships available mainly provided by private universities/colleges.
